Here's some stuff from the Perth show:

As the ‘Godfather Of Australian Rock ‘n’ Roll’ Michael Gudinski stepped up to the mic to introduce Jewel the pint sized American songstress – decked out in weather appropriate blue sundress – serenaded the crowd with an a cappella version of Somewhere Over The Rainbow before picking up her guitar. Her storytelling is as much a part of her set as her songs, as she prefaced Hands with the tale of her early days living on the streets and shoplifting. Standing Still, Foolish Games and You Were Meant For Me were all well received, and she showed off her more humorous side with Intuition (“who knew Charlie Sheen would be the gift that kept on giving?”) before leaving the crowd with a frenetic demonstration of her yodelling skills. It was perhaps an odd choice to have a solo acoustic performer as the main support coming straight after Pool’s similar stylings, but Jewel nevertheless showed the Perth crowd that she can still hold a large crowd captive with just the bare necessities.

The sound of Jewel’s voice singing her a cappella version of Somewhere Over The Rainbow over the parkland was a thing of beauty indeed.
The Alaskan star launched into a solo set that ran from hits such as Standing Still and You Were Meant for me (the latter co-written by frequent Perth visitor Steve Poltz) to intensely vulnerable moments, such as Foolish Games and Who Will Save Your Soul?, all permeated with a voice that could shine rust and a storyteller touch to be envied.
A set-closing walk down her own memory lane (noting that her son was in the audience also) with Chime Bells saw Jewel provide not only a master-class in the art of yodelling, but a warm, Americana-styled kick-off for what was to come.

An excerpt (there are pix, too!):

Quote
Don Henley & Jewel – Vector Arena March 23, 2017

At Auckland’s Vector Arena, in front of a wide range of ages and a near-capacity audience, Don Henley and his band followed a sensitive but powerful opening performance by Jewel.

This beautiful, unpretentious folk songstress- and proud mother- covered in a short time, her major hits including Hands, Here When Gone and Foolish Games. These, alongside an opening acapella rendition of Somewhere over the Rainbow and a yodelling finale, demonstrated Jewel’s vocal dexterity – from her vocal and musical range to her rhythm, phrasing, and diverse tones. Her songs were interspersed with charming and, often, frank stories of leaving Alaska as a young girl, subsequent homelessness and then escaping the poverty trap with her first hit, Hands.

Her quick repost to a male audience member who repeatedly insisted that she sing Stevie Nicks’ songs, showed a relaxed humour when she responded “I can see why there’s no female sitting next to you”. ( :lol:) As she signed off her impressive set she promised the audience a treat in Henley whom she described as an American icon whose songs she grew up singing with her father.
